Living Strings Play Henry Mancini

Experiment In Terror
Living Strings Play Henry Mancini

I'd rather buy an actual Mancini album. But, for 50¢ at the thrift... this isn't a bad lounge LP.

Days Of Whine And Rosese
Baby Elephant Walk
The Soft Touch
Peter Gunn
Theme From Hatari!
Blue Satin
Breakfast At Tiffany's
Mr. Lucky

Moon River


  1. I have this album and am in the process right now of converting it to MP3. I was trying to get more info on it and found your blog. Is 1963 the right date it was released? One site says 1962. I am just trying to catalog it by year.
    It is not that bad. When I found it in my mother's closet, I thought it was going to be Mancini too. They sure made his name big enough on the album! I see she bought it at 2 for $1.00 so I guess she paid 50 cents also!

    1. Most of my dates are found doing a Billboard Magazine search. A few record companies, including RCA, printed dates on their covers. Occasionally a date can be found on a site which attempts to catalog the LPs released by a particular label. – Mark
